Here are just a few of the iconic movie cars that are available on DriveShare, the ultimate collector car sharing platform… Coming to a driveway near you.
1969 Dodge Charger
Making TV history by making a jump that projected the car 16 feet high, 82 feet long and clearing a police car in The Dukes of Hazzard, the General Lee is easily one of the most recognized vehicles to be featured on screen. Throughout the 147 episodes and seven years of production it is reported that over three hundred 1968 and 1969 Chargers perished due to the insane stunts that were performed weekly to keep viewers coming back for more. From the iconic hood slide to the signature Dixie horn and characters like Bo to Daisy, the show has something for everyone. While nearly all of the original cars were scrapped, the real diehard fans created their own and thanks to them, here’s your chance to rent one today.
1967 Pontiac GTO
This is the actual star movie car from xXx and xXx: Return of Xander Cage as if it wasn’t interesting enough being one of about 9,500 GTO convertibles of the 81,722 GTO’s made in ’67. It’s fitted with a “rocket launching system” mounted in the upper headlights, a flipping rear seat to store world-saving weaponry, and is equipped with all of the original interior gauges and functioning lights so you can live as Agent Xander Cage for the day. The film was released shortly after The Fast and the Furious, which also starred Vin Diesel who played Dominic Torreto and was produced by the same man, Rob Cohen. So, it’s really no surprise that a muscle car played such a dominant role in the xXx movies. Now you can rent a piece of movie history.
1974 Cadillac “True Romance” Eldorado
Directly from the set of the Tarantino-written 90s cult film, True Romance, Dan’s ’74 Eldorado definitely turns some heads thanks to the loud purple paint job and exotic looking leopard interior. This is the actual hero car driven by Christian Slater(Clarence) and Patricia Arquette(Alabama) throughout the film, which also featured stars such as Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt, Dennis Hopper and Val Kilmer. During a chauffeured rental in this classic, the owner, dressed as Clarence, can even take you to a few spots where the movie was filmed, such as the Vista movie theater, Rae’s restaurant, and the Safari Inn. So whether you want to walk in the footsteps of one of your favorite celebrities on a sight-seeing tour or just cruise around Los Angeles in an eye-catching ride, this is an experience you’ll remember.
1981 DeLorean DMC-12
“The way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style,” and that’s exactly what Doc Brown did. In the mid-‘80s, Dr. Emmett Brown constructed the first-time traveling vehicle based on the DMC’s brushed stainless steel body. It originally required the use of plutonium in the first Back to the Future movie to produce the 1.21 Gigawatts necessary to take off, but this one runs on petrol so there is no need to worry about radiation poisoning or the Libyan Nationalists coming after you. This car is completely outfitted to replicate the one used on-screen, inside and out with no expense spared. Props are also included such as a Mattel Hoverboard, Einstein the dog, and character costumes. The interior is equipped with time circuits, plutonium gauges, a spectrum analyzer and the oh-so important flux capacitor. The exterior has been furnished with wiring harnesses, LED lights, and even a Mr. Fusion! So, as Biff would say, “Make like a tree and get out of here” and transport your way over to DriveShare.
1967 Land Rover Series IIA 109
While today’s Land Rovers are mainly built for luxury, the early models were heavily focused on their ruggedness and durability. Mostly recognized as a vehicle associated with African safaris, the Land Rover has more than proved itself over time as many are still in use to this day. Equipped from the factory with a 2.6 liter inline-six, the largest gasoline engine available at the time, they weren’t exactly built for speed. This example scored some screen time over its life as a movie prop vehicle and most notably was featured in The Bucket List starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. Being the model with the longer wheelbase, up to twelve people can be transported thanks to the high roofline and duel bench seats. Whether for chauffeured or event use, you can write this ride of your bucket list.
